A wonderful collection of envelope art from some of today's best loved children's illustrators, celebrating the art of letter-writing.
For over thirty years, lots of visitors to the publisher of Andersen Press, Klaus Flugge, have been delighted to see a large number of framed envelopes on the wall of his office. Klaus's longtime friend David McKee started things off many years ago with the first envelope; this was soon followed by more, which in turn inspired contributions from other artists including Satoshi Kitamura, Emma ChichesterClark and Fulvio Testa.
At the suggestion of Kate Gunning and Peter Fry of the Random House Sales Force the idea for a book of some of the more inspiring samples has now been realised.
